Typing, typing … writer’s block? Get moving.

Has your writing flow got a block? Let me explain.

Many times writers find themselves hitting the blank block. A lot of this is caused by the computer keyboards we all habitually use today. Not too many years ago many people wrote letters and collected them. Some have even been turned into books about people’s lives.

The brain is stimulated by the movement of the body, creating emotions, and new ideas. Sitting doing nothing creates a mental block. Have you ever imitated anyone’s behaviour and then found you are feeling like them, and thinking differently? In the same way, the brain needs to connect with the movement of writing on something. Movement creates new thoughts. Using a pen, pencil or crayon write anything on a scrap of paper and see how much it can reveal to you. Act out what you want to say and see if that helps. Better still, get into the habit of writing a journal about anything. Squiggling when you cannot think of anything will generate the thoughts needed to write more. Note how your ideas grow every day as you write.

Time to put in some action.

Ok writing a journal doesn’t happen just like that. Now you have jotted a few ideas on paper you need to broaden them into a story. This requires concentration. To open up your thoughts you need to be relaxed, but not too much. Find a place where you feel most comfortable, where you will not be interrupted, and keep that as your special space. You never know, it could become a book about you. Do you remember the book “The Diary of Anne Frank”? That was her journal. Now its time to write yours, with a pen to begin with. This will keep the ideas flowing. See our previous blog post for more inspiring and motivational tips.

Tip of the month

“Write so that people can hear it and it slides through the brain and goes straight to the heart”

Maya Angelou

Do you ever find yourself writing in the same place every time? Do you find yourself stuck for new ideas? If so change your writing environment once a week or more. This will inspire more ideas through your senses and relieve the monotony of your ‘boring’ environment. It will also help you see things in different contexts and will generate more emotional impact on your reader because when you are enthused with new inspiration it naturally flows into your writing.

Some places that are lovely for writing which most people think of are quiet parks, a parked car on the moors or other scenic settings, a visit to an old house and its grounds. Other tips are a visit to a quiet beach or woodland and other places that inspire imagination and emotional effects that you want to generate in your reader. Even an active theme park will create further characterisation and plot for your story. If you want to splash out there are writing retreats available on the internet. Keep a scrapbook and record useful content from each visit which could increase plot, characterisation, dialogue and narrative effects, and then look it up occasionally. You will be surprised how many new ideas come from the same book each time with each context. Share these tips with your writer friends too. They will appreciate it.

The above suggestions may seem obvious to some, but we can forget when boredom seeps in. For those who want some more adventurous inspiration, try swimming in the sea or river and recording your swimming journey on your mobile phone or other media. You could use this to write a story about an undersea world. Another idea would be to try visiting some caves and imagine living there or visit an empty desolate building that gets your imagination running rampant. Don’t forget your scrapbook and camera.
